"Living A Boy's Adventure Tale" as written by and Waaktaar/furuholmen....
I've fixed my dwelling for the night
Lights in pairs come passing by
Where I hide
I need some time now on my own
Leave my loneliness alone
To lick my wounds
Night has found me just in time
To help me close my eyes
One more time

Living a boy's adventure tale
In so many ways
Living a boy's adventure tale
For so many days
I'm living a boy's adventure tale
Can't escape, if I wanted to
Living a boy's adventure tale
I may be dreaming but I feel awake

I've been lost in so many places
Seeked love in so many faces
A change of weather,
The rain pours down
My head in hands,
Pressed to the ground
And where am I supposed to go now

Living a boy's adventure tale
In so many ways
Living a boy's adventure tale (aah)
Living a boy's adventure tale

A voice I hear
Living a boy's adventure tale
Singing a lullaby for me
Living a boy's adventure tale

Because of you
Living a boy's adventure
Oh you know it's true
Living a boy's adventure tale

In so many ways (aah)
For so many days
I love you. I love you
So many ways

    General CommentOK, so I've been reading the posts on this site for damn-near 3 years now, NEVER contributing to it. It took me to find this song by A-Ha to get off my butt, register and submit a comment. (Hey, better late than never, right?).

    Anyway, this might be one of my favoriate A-ha songs ever. It's sad, beautiful, especially with some of the sound of the oboe in the middle, and it makes me think of my ex-wife (not sure why, but it just does). Btw, I'm a 38-yr. male, and these guys were pretty big back in the day (although most of my friends thought A-Ha were shit. Whatever.).

    Does anyone else out there find this a hauntingly beautiful song?

    General CommentOK, this IS my favorite A-Ha song.

    I spent an inordinate amount of time during childhood just daydreaming, my imagination being my greatest adventure. Also roaming the countryside on the family farm, seeking something in my frequent walks. My melencholy personality and my somewhat voyeuristic observation of life lent itself to the rich, dark emotions the song describes.

    I was always captivated by the oboe, a perfect instrument for the lyrics.

    By the way, if anyone likes oboe in pop music, take a listen to "China Crisis - Working with Fire and Steel - Possible Pop Songs Vol. 2". Excellent oboe work in pop music.
